Preliminary Technology Assessment
What is This Technology?
Even though overall, the electric consumption of GSA’s buildings with photovoltaic (PV) arrays exceed the amount of electricity generated by their PV systems, the imbalances between time of generation and time of demand means that a substantial amount of electricity is returned to the utilities. This project will evaluate Net Metering versus registering a building as a Qualified Facility with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The intent is to optimize how GSA locates, sizes, and funds future renewable energy systems.

Measurement & Verification
The Green Proving Ground program has commissioned the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to perform measurement and verification (M&V) with on-site renewable at 62 sites in the U. S.
